Clean. Pristine. Divine. A white dove. Brides, babies and the sacred. It is innocence in it’s essence and a key player in today’s modern interiors.
But white is not simply white. Layered with tonal possibilities, white represent tabula rasa – a blank slate – all that is possible. Perhaps, most importantly, a clearing in the thicket of our lives. The promise of rest.
Sir Isaac Newton discovered that natural white light contains all colours – we simply can’t see them being reflected. Contrary to the misnomer of a pure white, true whites are rarely found in nature. In fact, part of the beauty of using white is how white can be layered on other iterations of itself for a beautiful designed environment.
On a psychological level, white:
•Aids mental clarity
•Encourages us to clear clutter or obstacles
•Evokes purification of thoughts or actions
•Enables fresh beginnings
White is a colour associated with peace and calm; meditation and quiet. Think of your
street after a fresh snowfall. Silence. Reprieve. White embraces black as an anchor.
Orange as a accent. Grey as an achromatic. Understanding the foundational
importance of white, Patty Madden has explored the various levels of white and
provided Luxe Surfaces with a variety of white SKUs that explore the tonal corners of
this often misunderstood hue. Visit the WALLCOVERING tab at our website and search
the FILTER window for the colour WHITE. You will be enchanted by the options – from
textures and designs, small and large, some flat, some highlighted with cool and warm
metallics, we invite you to reflect.
